His Most Gracious Majesty George the Fourth
His Most Gracious Majesty George the Fourth Dedicated by Permission to His Royal Highness the Duke of York By His Royal Highnesses obedient Humble Servant, Charles James Scott.
Engraved by Thomas F. Ranson, from a Drawing by the Late Edmund Scott.
Published by C.J. Scott, 2 Bond Street, Brighton, and by Messrs. Colnaghi & Co. Cockspur Street, London. [n.d. c.1820 - 1828]
Line engraving. 423 x 300mm. 16" 2/3 x 11¾".
George IV (George Augustus Frederick; 12 August 1762 26 June 1830) was king of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and Hanover from 29 January 1820 until his death. He had earlier served as The Prince Regent when his father, George III, suffered from a relapse into insanity from an illness that is now suspected to have been porphyria. The Regency, George's nine-year tenure as Prince Regent, which commenced in 1811 and ended with George III's death in 1820, was marked by victory in the Napoleonic Wars in Europe. George was a stubborn monarch, often interfering in politics, especially in the matter of Catholic emancipation, though not as much as his father. For most of George's regency and reign, Lord Liverpool controlled the government as Prime Minister. George is remembered largely for the extravagant lifestyle that he maintained as prince and monarch. By 1797 his weight had reached 17 stone 7 pounds (111 kg or 245 lb), and by 1824 his corset was made for a waist of 50 inches (127 cm). He had a poor relationship with both his father and his wife, Caroline of Brunswick, whom he even forbade to attend his coronation. He was a patron of new forms of leisure, style and taste. He commissioned architects John Nash to build the Royal Pavilion in Brighton and remodel Buckingham Palace, and Sir Jeffry Wyatville to rebuild Windsor Castle. He was largely instrumental in the foundation of the National Gallery, London and King's College London.

Of Man: Six Monograms by David Scott S.A. The speech of these things trembleth and is moved / Esdras
Edinburgh, Henry Constable: / London, Moon, Boys & Graves: Hamburga, Peithis & Besser: / Leipzig, Ernst Fleisher: 1831.
Set of six interleaved etchings with original wrapper (front only), with large margins, very rare; sheets approx 505 x 425mm (19¾ x 16¾")
Complete set of David Scott's 'Monograms of Man', a series of allegorical scenes with Biblical quotations tracing the life of man, influenced by the etching style of Blake and Flaxman. The six plates (Of Death; Of Life; Of Power; Of Intellect; Of Knowledge; Of Relation) were well-received but a commercial failure when published in 1831. Scott (1806-49) was an Edinburgh-born painter and poet whose work frequently tackled themes of death, terror and the supernatural. His works were frequently met with incomprehension but he did little to make his work accessible. He has subsequently been placed firmly within the tradition of British Romantic painting, with admirers including Dante Gabriel Rossetti, who described him as 'the painter most nearly fulfilling the highest requirement for historic art, both as a thinker and a colourist who has appeared among us from the time of Hogarth to his own'.
